At one end is the large Cheadle End Stand which towers over the rest of the stadium. This stand which was opened at the beginning of the 1995-96 season, is two tiered, covered and all seated. Opposite, is the Railway End, a former open terrace which was converted to a seating area in 2001. This end is given to away supporters and has a small electric scoreboard situated above it. Both sides are quite old looking stands, that are both covered and all seated. The Main Stand is only about two thirds the length of the pitch and straddles the half way line. This stand dates back to the late 1930's. On the other side is the Popular Side Stand, a former covered terrace which is now all seated.
There is a small Labour Club (C.I.U. Affiliated) right by the entrance to the Railway End, that allows visitors in, for a small entrance fee. Otherwise there are a number of pubs along a shopping area, across the main road from the away end. Probably the best is the Royal Oak just at the end of Castle Street.
Please note that alcohol is not available in the away end.
